Colors of Summer at Deep Ocean Challenge!

Hello, dear friends! It's time for a fun new challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge! We are celebrating the colors of summer! There are many to choose from in this beautiful season. While oceanic color palettes are one of my favorites, my heart belongs to the sweetness of bright pink and yellow. Our sponsor this time is the fabulous Noor Design UK shop!

I created an encouragement card for a precious teen battling cancer. She is sweet and sparkly and has faith that moves mountains. ♥︎
To send her an abundance of healing love and sunshine, I chose this sweet Prima resin balloon bouquet from the Hearts collection. It (and the wooden heart in the corner) are sprinkled with Shabby Pink Frantage.
The pretty papers are from Maja Design's Coffee in the Arbour. Most of the lovely trims and embellishments are from Live & Love Crafts, with the exception being Sweet Love crinkle ribbon from my sweet friend Diana at DL.Art. The flowers are a combination of Wild Orchid Crafts and I Am Roses.
For summertime fun, the interior is filled with lemons. My base was made with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles. I hope this card wraps her in the sweetest hug. ♥︎

Be sure to check out the lovely creations from my talented teamies! Thank you for visiting and I wish you a sparkly day. :o)
